Predictable, but no less cuckish for being so.
The vote Tuesday was 0-57 with 43 Democrats voting present, including the Senate’s half-dozen presidential candidates, to sidestep the GOP maneuver and buy time to build their campaign positions…
“I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on this radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy,” McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said before the vote.
President Donald Trump met Tuesday with Senate Republicans at the Capitol, and Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, said afterward the president told them regarding the Green New Deal, “make sure you don’t kill it too much because I want to run against it” in 2020.
Dems voting no with the GOP were Joe Manchin, Doug Jones, Kyrsten Sinema, and Angus King. All others voted present, raising an obvious question: Why? Right, sure, the bill had no hope of passing, and Democrats from more purple states had a political incentive not to vote yes even if they didn’t want to risk pissing off the left by voting no. But why wouldn’t the 2020 crop vote yes? A candidate who’d taken no position on the legislation obviously wouldn’t want to commit to it knowing how the price tag might be used against them in the general election. But they’ve all endorsed it. Klobuchar went so far as to say a few weeks ago that she would vote yes on the legislation in principle even though she views it as mostly “aspirational.”
